MH. MANIHJIISON'S private secretary
writes to ids homo paper to assure it of

THE old Goodrich lot on Farnam and
Sixteenth street , which was sold to John
A. MoShano last Juno for $50,000 , has
ngain changed hands , this time at an ad
vance of $20,000 over the last recorded
Urico. Senatorial boomlots may fall , but
the vuliio of real estate in Omaha con-
tlnues to rise with a steadiness and per
severance which is undisturbed by wind ,
weather or politics.
AccoimiNd to the congressional report
on the Fremont postolHco building
appropriation , the Northwestern railroad
propose to erect their t-hops at an. early
rtayln that thriving town. What did
Mr. Hughltt's request for a donation of
$70,000 from the citizens of Omaha mean
anyhow ? This is the question which the
business men who were circulating the
petition to the board of county commis
sioners arc beginning to ask. themselves
The People's DdTcat.
There will bo general disappointment
and indignation throughout the slate
over the rc ult of the senatorial struggle
which has ended in the defeat of Van
Wyck. Hegret will not be confined to
Nebraska alone , where tlio general is
ncrsonally known nnd honored for lite
faithful devotion to principles dear to his
ronstituenls. Throughout the whole
oountrywhercver the cause which ho has
championed hns supporters and friends ,
and the oncmirs which ho has made
arc understood and felt , the
defeat of Senator Van Wyck will
be generally regarded as an audacious
blow at popular sovereignly secured
through a dangerous subversion of repre
sentative government , lie was the pee
ples'choice. His cause was confidently
committed into the hands of men chosen
bj * the people to voice their will and
pledged by the most solemn of all
pledges to stake their all upon his polit
ical fortunes. He had mntlo a brave and
manly canvass for re-elcclion , appealing
from the politicians to the pcoplc.and the
reply was an endorsement so marked
nnd so decisive that the result
was not considered doubtful. Chal
lenging corporate monopoly In the
open field he would have won without
question if the treachery of pretended
friends had not come to tlio assistance of
corporate corruption and tlio tremendous
pressure which tlio monopolies brought
to bear upon the legislature elected to
elect tlio people's candidate.
As General Van Wyck's cause was the
people's , so his defeat is the defeat of tlio
people. It will be so taken throughout
the country. In the face of tlio legisla
tive elections and tlio popular vote
polled the rejection of Van Wyck , who
ever his successor , was : v
bold defiance of popular senti
ment , lint there are victories
more costly to the victors than the van
quished. In the cud the outraged people
will make the traitors and suborners of
treachery pay dearly for their prize. Suc
cess gained at the expense ot political
rectitude and in bold defiance of the un
derlying principle of representative gov
ernment cannot bo more than a. transient
victory. The reaction is already setting
in. Within a few days bitter indignation
will become a swelling tide of resentment
which will roll throughout the state and
will boat fiercely about the state capital.
Sanitation In the HclionU.
The report of the Committee of the
Hoard of Kdecation at the last meeting
of the school board was a painful revela
tion of the gross neglect of the most ordi
nary sanitary precautions in the con
struction of several of our school build
ings. According to the showing made
by the committee a number of our public
.schools have been erected on plans and
specifications that would disgrace a
school boy. Ventilating Hues connect
with sinks , fresh air and foul air ducts
arc in direct communication < vith e ch
other , and sanitary raquirements , gener
ally , seem to have been quite lost
sight of in the attempt to secure
as many rooms and as much room as pos
sible in the space and from the money al
lotted. It there is one place more than
another , whcru the most rigid precau
tions against imperfect sanitation should
bo adopted , that place is the school room.
An abundance of pure air and light are
the two great requisites which all
\\cll informed and experienced architects
assume in planning such buildings.
Without them tired uyes , aching heads ,
and wearied brains , uro the certain re
sults. Many a reprimand given to rest
less children would not be called for if
gross incompetency on the part of the
architects had not made a heavy atmos
phere and foul air renponsiblo for child
ish nervousness.
The board of education owe it to the
public to at once inaugurate sweeping re
forms in the construction of our school
houses. There should no longer bo fav
ored architects and stock plans. The
first requisite .should bo sanitary com
pleteness. Other requirements can safely
wait on lids.
The New Chinese Treaty.
The draft of a treaty which has been
agreed upon between the United States
and the representatives of China in this
country is important as showing that the
Chinese government lias concluded that
its people cannot be assimilated with the
population of the United States , and that
it is expedient that immigration shall
stop * Hie treaty contains in substance
tlio provisions of the anti-Chincso re
striction bill which was introduced nttho
last session of congress and mot with
strong opposition in the house , nnd
which has been so greatly amended that
its passage is considered doubtful. It is
said that the supporters of the measure
in the house hardly expect to carry it
through at this session , and in view of
this the administration has endeavored
to secure the substantial objects of the
bill through a treaty. The treaty , how
ever , contains one important provision
that is not in tlio bill. It provides that
the Chinese who may bo in the United
States shall bo entitled to the same pro
tection of tlio laws as all other persons , a
provision which it is claimed by these
familiar with the history of the negotia
tion of the treaty would make the United
Slides responsible for any outrage upon
t ho Chinuso of tlio character they have sev
eral time.s been made the victims of. The
period of the exclusion act is extended by
the treaty to thirty years , counted , U is
presumed , from the date of the ratifica
tion of the treat- . The present restric
tion act was fora period of seven years ,
four of which have elapsed , and though
this Jaw is very rigid in its provisions , it
has been discovered that ingenious ways
have been resorted to to evade it.
The principal features of the Morrow
bill and of the now proposed treaty are
that no Chim o laborer shall have the
right to emigrate to the United States
for a certain number of years ; that moans
shall bo provided for the identification by
photographic representations of any
Chinaman who shall seek to go abroad ,
and that the number of Chinese that may
bo brought over in any one ship or vessel
shall bo limited. The treaty is a con
tinuation of the acts of 1833 and 1881 ,
which were in the line of attempted ex
clusion of Chinese laborers , commencing
with the liftcen passenger act , vetoed by
President Hayes , followed by the twenty
years' restriction act , vetoed by President
Arthur , and culminating in the measures
now proposed. Relative to the Morrow
bill , the report of the committee on the
measure said that notwithstanding the re
peated acts of legislation manifold
evasions of the law have been practiced
which haru blocked the federal courts of
San Francisco with quasi-criminal cases
which have precedence over other busi
ness , nnd have failed to meet the exigcn *
cics which called the laws into exist
ence. Furthermore the failure of the
laws to accommplish the purpose in
tended by their enactment , and llio con
tinued emigration of Chinese laborers ,
has precipitated a race conllict resulting
In nets of violence that cannot bo ig
nored and should be prevented by whole
some legislation.
Tim draft of the treaty will probably
be considctcd by tlio senate at the pres
ent .session , but llnaal notion may not bo
had before the next congicss. It is proba
bly as much of a concession on the part
of tlio Chinese government as the United
States could reasonably ask.
Progress or Manual
A writer in an eastern paper says that
those not specially interested in the sub
ject of manual training know little of the
i-xtont to which it has found favor. At
the exhibition last spring of the work
dona by children in such classes through
out the country it was shown that a faith
in the system Is very general. More than
sixty schools and institutions , represent
ing many cities nnd towns , and embrac
ing nil grades of manual training , from
its first step in the Kindergarten to its full
development in the training school , took
part in the exhibition. In Now York ,
counting charitable institutions , there
are thirty-three schools where children
and young people receive technical edu
cation , cither as part of their sciiool worker
or as a ptnparation for permanent em
ployment in so.no branch of industry.
Provision is now made in tiio public ;
schools of .several largo cities for manual
training. In the Philadelphia public
schools kindergarten methods are used in
the sub-primary grades. Sowing is taught
in all grades. The industrial art school
supplies instruction in drawing , design
ing , modeling in clay , wood-carving ,
carpentry and metal work. In
tlio manual training school there is
instruction in free hand and mechan
ical drawing , carpentry , wood-turning ,
use of tools , forging , management of en-
cities , etc. In the lioston public schools
tlio pupils are allowed certain hours in
the week wlion they can work in the
classes of tlio llomctiway technical
schools. In Now York the importance
which technical training is assuming in
so many private schools and institutions
is sulliclont answer to these critics who
do not believe cither in the advisability
or practicability of making manual train
ing a part of our public school work.
Steadily this principle is making its way ,
proving its worth and wisdom with every
step of its progress , and giving assurance
that its ultimate general adoption is
merely a question of time.
The hate l'rocs < ! or Youinang.
The cause of science lost one of its most
industrious and valuable workers in the
death of Professor Edward Livingston
Youmans , which occurred on last Tues
day. More than forty years of his
lite were actively devoted to scientific
study and research , carried on under the
allliction of a greatly impaired eyesight ,
which to the majority of men would have
been an insurmountable obstacle to such
labor. When thirteen years of age he
was attacked by ophthalmia , and for
some years was totally blind. Ever after
wards his sight was very defective , and it
frequently happened that lie was unable
to road. Yet he did not give up the work
for which he had a natural love , in which
ho received valuable aid from his sister ,
Miss Annie Eliza Youmans , who was in
full sympathy with her brother's inclina
tions , and the results gave him a place
among the foremost ot his contemporaries
in the extent and value of his contribu
tions to scientific knowledge. Ho was
the autlior of numerous works which
occupy a high rank among similar pro
ductions , the best and most widely known
of these being "Alcohol and the
Constitution of Man , " "The Cor
relation anil Conservation of
Forces , " "The Chemistry of the
Sunbeam , " and "The Dynamics of Life. "
All these works have been accepted as
standards , and widely read as well in
Europe as in this country.
But the greatest value of the work of
Prof. Youmans was in its successful
ollbrt to popularize scientific knowledge
and reading. If not the originator , ho
was ono of the pioneers of the plan of
popular lectures on scientific subjects ,
nnd ho was most happily constituted to
present a subject clearly to the unlearned
in such matters. In 1372 , in furtherance
of this purpose , ho established the I'opii-
lar Science Monthly , of which ho contin
ued the editor to the close of Ins life , as
sisted in recent years by his younger
brother , William .1. Youmans. The ser
vice oi that publication in stimulating
popular interest In and extending tlio
knowledge of scientific subjects has boon
very groat. Tlio year before starting the
magazine Prof. Youmans projected the
"International Scientific Series , " which
Iia's been very successful , fifty.seven vol
umes having been issued up to this ( into.
It is sa'd lie was more instrumental than
all other men put together in introducing
and promoting tiio circulation in this
country of Herbert Spencer's works ,
which he edited. That distinguished
philosopher , whoso fame begun in tlio
United States , wes also indebted to Prof.
Youmans for the first serious attention
ho received from the British public.
Surely the work of such a lifo merits
the heartiest commendation. Men ex
haust eulogy and panegyric in honoring
the memory of the successful soldier
and politician , not always with a thought
of motives or methods. The labors of
the patient soldier of science , always di
rected and contribute. ! to tlio improve
ment and advancement of mankind , are
certainly entitled to nt least n passing
mention and tribute.
A Vote-run Htiiilent.
It is said that the veteran historian ,
George Bancroft , who is in the eighty-
seventh year of his ncro , has turned his
attention from the writing of history to
the study of Shakespeare. And ho is re
newing his acquaintance with the pages
of the "Immortal bard" for a purpose , in
which ho hopes to make the public a
sharer. He has entered upon his now
field of labor with the ardor of a young
stuuent , and hopes if his lifo in spared to
add a valuable contribution to Shakes-
percan literature. What an example is
this for these men , literary , professional ,
or otherwise , who grow weary of tlio con-
tliet almost before they have passed the
meridian of lifo , and instead of seeking
now sources of labor are eager to surren
der those they have. The veteran his
torian , whose whole life has been one of
plodding industry , is not only unwearied
nt eighty-seven , but is so vigorous , ambi
tious and hopeful thaj. ho takes upon him
self a task which to 4nno has been nearly
a lifo work , and ho will pursue it with
his wonted care and persistence. It is to
bo hoped he will live wgivo the world
the result of his study of a subject re
specting which there is still opportunity
for enlightenment. ,
hni gained nothing in
Van Wyck's defeat. For'iyears thu repub
lican following of General Van Wyck has
been the leaven which has redeemed the
republican party from abject sla\ cry to
the corporations. If treachery and the
lavish use of monopoly money have suc
ceeded in permanently alienating thou
sands of republicans from the party wo
fail to sec what the grand old party
will gain by the result at Lin
coln. The party can never bo
harmonized on monopoly linos. That
attempt has failed too ofleti in Nebraska
for hope of future success. The conllicts
and debates of the ten years' struggle
have educated a constituency which has
proved itself time and again less anxious
for party success as such than for honest
government by honest men. It has never
yet failed to pay back with interest the
treachery of the machine to the masses.
The Ink is not yet faded on the avalanche
of ballots under which an outraged re
publican constituency buried forever a
republican candidate nominated for con
gress in brazen defiance of an over
whelming public sentiment.

this Interesting piece of gossip about a foim-
or well-known resident of Omaha : A gen
tleman who has lecently seen ex-Seimtoi
William Pitt Kellogg lu the west says that ho
Is ono of the most successful of the southern
men who made up , after reconstruction , the
small carpet-bag element In the senate from
the south , lie Is supposed to bo worth some-
\\hcieln the nciuhborhoud of a million del
Inis. lie. owns n largo amount of real estate
In Washington and hns a good deal ot piop-
erty In Chicago , lie owns one entire block
lu the business poition of Washington. Ho
also owns some veiy valuable laiid.ln Ne
braska. lie was chief justice of thesupiemo
court In Nebraska before the war , when it
was a territory. He Haded oil at Hint time a
luirof hoises lor seven acres oi laud lu the
nclghboihoud of Omaha. The other day ho
sold a lot from it for ; : v,000. Tlilsreptesents
the best pi Ice ever paid for any pair of ouli-
nary hoises on recoul. When Mr. Kellogg
made the purchase ho dio\o out to view the
land , nnd when he made thn trade the owner
of the land took the lior es at ouce , and Air.
Kelloffg had n hard time tramping back. Ho
did not think much of Ids pmchase , nnd has
been very nearsolllnirlt n number of times.
The whole tract to-day Is said to bo worth
somowheio hi the neighboihuod of n quarter
of a million.
Omaha cas Is not a very healthy thing to
have Iloatlns mound in the atmospheio ot
dwelling houses. People cannot be too care
ful about thelrgas lixtuies , which should lie
thoroughly Inspected at licquent Intervals
nnd kept in perfect icpair so that they will
not leak. "I called nt a residence on Canitol
lilll ono day not long ago , " said a gentle
man , "andas nearly suffocated by the
smell ol gas. I called the attention ol the
lady of the house to It , and she said that was
nothing as they had got used to it. " That
family is making a gicat mistake , like many
others in all probability , and when their
health is ruined they will realize It too late.
r. are several things that need regu
lating at liovil's opera house. In the first
place the men who are in the habit of stand
ing along the rear nislo and disturbing people
ple by their loud tallc should bo made either
to shut up or take n walk. In the second
place the tobacco chcwets who sit ou the
steam registcis and squht tobacco juice on
the carpet should bu oscoited to the sidewalk.
Another nuisance is ( lie man wants to look
in just for n few minutes and while doing so
keeps the door open , causing n dratt to
sweep tluough the house to the annoyance ol
every one. Some one ought to sit down on
him.
Their First How in Public.
The pupils' recital given last night nt
Lyon A : Healoy's piano wareiooms by the

wny a matked success. Mr. Fran ko has nl-

music that Omaha over counted among Its
inhabitants. This was proved last evening
by the entertainment mentioned above , and
It Is hard to say who of the performers was
entitled to the honors of the evening. Both
Miss Hessic Morse nnd Miss Mav Wallace deserve -
servo hljjh pralso for tlinir splendid perform
